Midweek Match Review

4th April, 2008

An extra-time strike by Jamie Barnwell saw Hall Road Rangers pick up the Wilkinson Sword Trophy in a dramatic Final.

After the first game finished 1-1, Teversal were just seventeen minutes away from victory after Jamie Hudson had given them the lead on the half-hour at Dene Park.

Rangers were then awarded a penalty that was converted by Paul Palmer and, with nine minutes remaining of extra-time, Barnwell made himself the hero.

The hosts won 2-1 on the night, 3-2 on aggregate, and Hall Road lifted the trophy for the second time in five years.

Meanwhile, the Presidents Cup Final is finely balanced after a 1-1 draw in the first leg between Liversedge and Armthorpe Welfare.

The two sides meet in the reverse fixture at Church Street next Tuesday.

And, Parkgate will face Winterton Rangers in the Final of the League Cup after a 1-0 win at Barton Town Old Boys.

Caine Cheetham grabbed the only goal of the game in the 49th minute.

In the Premier Division, Glapwell picked up a point in their quest to keep hold of second place with a 1-1 draw at Mickleover Sports.

Both goals came in the opening eighteen minutes with Ian Brown putting the visitors ahead before the equaliser by Richard Bailey.

They are now three points in front of Liversedge with a game in hand.

However, their biggest threat comes from Pickering Town who are five behind but have two more matches to play than the Hall Corner outfit, including a home game against Glapwell.

A first-half James Tevendale hat-trick continued Hallam's rise up the table as they beat bottom side Glasshoughton Welfare 3-1 to climb into fourth spot.

The visitors picked up a consolation in the second period from Matthew Tattersley but are now virtually assured to get the wooden spoon as they are nine points adrift with only three games to go.

Honours were even, meanwhile, between Thackley and Shirebrook Town, two sides desperately trying to stay out of the bottom two.

Shirebrook will be the happier with the 0-0 scoreline away from home but both teams will still be nervously looking over their shoulder especially as Maltby Main leapfrogged over them both with a 4-0 home win against fellow strugglers Lincoln Moorlands Railway.

In Division One, Borrowash Victoria were 4-1 winners at bottom side Pontefract Collieries with all their goals coming in the last quarter-of-an-hour.

James Tomlinson's 50th minute penalty had the hosts in front before a brace each from Andy Mottershead and Karl Payne gave the visitors the points.

Ponte are now certain to be the basement side as, like Glasshoughton, they are nine points adrift with three to play.

And, Dinnington Town's Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup campaign is over despite a brave performance at home to Worksop Town.

In front of a crowd of 415, it was a night of celebration after they had secured the Division One title at the weekend.

But, Andy White's ninth minute strike meant the Blue Square North side went through by a single goal.
